On what file system? It's certainly acceptable on HFS and HFS+. The problem is with the API used to access such filenames. On MacOSX, it's problematic, as just about everything gets distilled down to Posix calls, which are C-based, which use the null character as string terminators (as does MPW - notice how I managed to weave that in? :-) ) On Mac OS 9, though, it's certainly possible to use the HFS API to manipulate filenames containing NULL characters, or just about any other character, for that matter. Of course, the ':' character was used as a pathname separator, so it may be somewhat difficult to use it in a filename.
